Roland Kelts – Anime at UMSL

[HTML1]

Roland Kelts talking about Murakami Takashi’s “Superflat” aesthetic and the differences between Japanese and American art styles. Especially poignant is the contrast between hanga and Superman. The next clip I post will examine Pokemon and Hello Kitty! Stay tuned! (Can I say that on the Internet?)

For more information on Superflat, see the Hiroki Azuma article here.
